Bonjour Nicole,

At the present, there isn't one for this particular meaning of 'devoir'. Although, I have included some examples to reflect its use as 'to owe'.

‘devoir' = 'to owe’

Je dois de l’argent à mon oncle I owe my uncle money

Il doit de l’argent à tout le monde = he owes everyone money

Tu me dois un sacré service = you owe me a very big favour

Thomas doit beaucoup à sa fille = Thomas owes a lot to his daughter

Il doit son amour de la littérature à sa mère = he owes his love of literature to his mother

‘se devoir’ = to owe one another:

Les époux se doivent fidélité = married couples owe each other fidelity.

Link to the our glossary on 'devoir' : lessons/devoir

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!
